It is extremely easy to understand why every state places an emphasis on safe driving practices. Car accidents occur at an alarmingly high rate, and while that is to some degree a function of the sheer number of cars on the road each day, there is no doubt that conscientious driving would help reduce those numbers. Safe driving practices include more than not driving while intoxicated; drivers need to remain focused at all times on the road, or a serious accident may occur. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert car accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
Valery Arreola, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was sitting in her parked car with her two young children just like any other day. All of a sudden, however, everything changed when a truck crashed into the rear end of the 1999 Nissan. First responders were forced to use the Jaws of Life to get one of Arreola’s sons out of the vehicle, as the crash had all but destroyed the car.
Arreola’s 3 year-old son was critically injured, while her 5 year-old son escaped with only minor injuries. The real tragedy was to Arreola herself, who died in the hospital some hours after the crash occurred. Witnesses report that in the moments immediately after the truck crash, Arreola’s only focus was getting her two children to safety. She was eight months pregnant at the time.
